README for the `adhocfilelist' package
-- \listfiles entries from command line --
(C) Uwe Lueck 2012/10/17
`adhocfilelist.sh' is a shell script to display a list of LaTeX
\Provides... contents on screen. Parameters can be either a list
of comma-separated file names or criteria for the Unix `find'
utility, especially to restrict the list to LaTeX source files
modified <digits> days ago, such as "today". Command line options
provide interfaces to the find utility and to packages `myfilist',
`longnamefilelist', `nicefilist', and `filedate' for accessing and
aligning those file informations and for adding a test of "date
consistency" (even with XeTeX where \pdffilemoddate is unavailable).
REQUIRED: This works on Unix-like systems only, and probably the
GNU version of `find' is required. The LaTeX bundle `fileinfo'
must be installed, and full functionality requires the LaTeX
packages `longnamefilelist', `nicefilelist', and `filedate'.
RELATED PACKAGES: Apart from what has been mentioned above,
`latexfileversion', `typeoutfileinfo', and `ltxfileinfo' are
related in that they are somewhat extended to a
"multiplicity" of files whose infos are displayed.
DOCUMENTATION: The manual `adhocfilelist.htm' can be read by a
web browser, and the command line option `-h' provides an
abridged version of it.
KEYWORDs: Package management, document versions.

LaTeX \Provides...-command contexts on screen. Provision
is made for controlling the searches that the package does.
The package was developed on a Unix-like system, using (among
other things) the gnu variant of the find
